Operation Orphan Rescue
Change a Life Foundation and our Partners have come together to enact “Operation Orphan Rescue”. The current Pilot Project we are involved with will assist in the fulfillment of the urgent physical needs of the impoverished children of the Emmanuel Homestead Orphanage in Zimbabwe. Our key goal within this mission is to create sustainability and initiate actual changes within the lives of these children for Christ. The project will implement Holistic Farming Villages, humanitarian aid, micro-enterprise, agriculture and water and the building of churches and homes for families.
Holistic Farming Villages
The “holistic villages” will be equipped with livestock and gardens, which will provide for the dietary needs of the families (which would consume 40% of the production, allowing 60% to be sold by the family to generate profit).
The Villages will incorporate churches, homes for vulnerable orphans, areas for crops and animals that provide food and sources of micro-enterprise and a community gathering place.
Through our Partnerships, we are providing weekly food supplies to widowed mothers to take home to their children, so they do not have to make the heart wrenching decision of placing them in an orphanage in order to be fed.
Agriculture and Water
Alongside our Partners, Change a Life Foundation has secured the development of a “deep well” water management system. The system will be implemented in the “Holistic Villages”.
Fifty-two Widows and Grandmothers will have the opportunity to start a new business through the creation of the Broiler Bird Rearing micro-enterprise.
In Partnership with the local Church and Life International, Change a Life Foundation is building homes for true orphans that house 8 children and one foster parent. Two houses are underway, and six additional will be completed to accommodate forty orphans in Tanyaradzwa.
Through our Partner International Cooperating Ministries (ICM), Change a Life Foundation is constructing Church buildings for the “Holistic Villages”.

For my father and mother have forsaken me, but the Lord will take me in.
